For Master's Programs Applicants

I do not offer any Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTA) or Graduate Research Assistantships (GRA) for master's students. However, hourly research positions may be available ($15/hour), for which you may contact me. 

In addition, if you are also interested in our Ph.D. program, please keep in mind that I only recruit Ph.D. students with a master's degree and proven research record.

For Ph.D. Programs Applicants

We support Ph.D. applicants through Teaching Assistantships (GTA) or Graduate Research Assistantships (GRA).


I post GRA positions here and AGU CAREER. If you do not see any advertisements here or AGU CAREER, it means no GRA is available at the moment.


We usually offer a limited number of GTAs in our department, Geological and Mining Engineering and Sciences (GMES) at Michigan Tech. Although the GTA selection is solely under GMES's discretion, I can nominate you for GTA positions. Thus, if 1) your research interest is aligned with mine, and 2) you have a proven record of research and scholarly achievements, please contact me. Additionally, in the email, please mention that you are interested in GTA.
